Here’s a 2 minutes and 55 seconds Eating Disorders Can Lead To Dental Health Concerns video. See full transcript below.
Bulimia and anorexia are eating disorders brought about by the intense need to avoid weight gain. In doing so, it has been found that people suffering from these conditions are also endangering the well-being of their teeth and gums. People experiencing bulimia frequently vomit after eating. As a consequence, their teeth are exposed to stomach acids and become weak and brittle as the enamel is eroded by the acid.
Whereas for anorexia nervosa, the problems lies in malnutrition. People who are anorexic tend to severely limit their food intake. As such, they miss out on a lot of nutrients which are essential to dental health and oral wellness, namely: calcium, iron, fluoride, B vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin D, and many others. Inadequacy of these nutrients make them more prone to dental and oral health problems.
